Unless you've been able to drown out the noise and sift through the ether, you are more than well aware that Beyonce's Ivy Park athleisure collection drops on April 14. Ivy Park, which will be sold at Topshop, both in stores and online, is full of basics and essentials. Ivy Park pieces can take you from the gym to the street and can be dressed up or down, depending on what else you pair them with or how you style them. There are lots of leggings, sweatshirts, bra tops, and more. The brand is calling the collection "high performance technical sportswear" that is also "fashion-led casualwear."
So, yeah, it's everyday clothes that aren't sloppy or schlubby. The Ivy Park aesthetic reminds me a little bit of Alexander Wang's urban dystopian H&M collection from two years ago, since the Ivy Park logo is prominently displayed in so many of the pieces. The collection is not cheap, but it's still affordable. Considering the Ivy Park hype and mania, which means shopping and nabbing pieces could be a challenge due to a possible sellout, along with the cost and factoring in your personal style and budget, there is actually one Ivy Park clothing item you need to buy. Which Ivy Park piece belongs in every fashion girl's closet?
Logo Hoodie, $55, Ivy Park
The Ivy Park logo hoodie is the must-have item from the collection and here's why.
At just $55, it's a steal. How? Well, it's multi-seasonal. You can wear it in the winter and the fall, under cropped leather jackets and paired with chunky knit scarves, as it's the perfect layering piece. You can also toss it over your shoulders on cool beach nights by the bonfire and on those unseasonably chilly spring mornings. Therefore, the cost ends up being pennies-per-wear.
High Rise Y Leggings, $65, Ivy Park
The hoodie also goes with anything. You can pair it with any of the many leggings in the Ivy Park collection, such as this high rise black pair. You probably have at least five pairs of leggings (or jeggings) folded neatly in your closet right now. Any of those will be turnt when worn with the Ivy Park logo hoodie. You can rock it with shorts and skinnies, too.
Look how cozy and comfy it is. Women of all sizes can wear it and will look beautiful doing so.
Bey is so badass, isn't she? You can also proudly display your love for the queen by wearing the logo hoodie bearing her clothing brand's name. Because you should never, ever hide your love for Beyonce.
I certainly won't attempt to discourage you from shopping lots and lots of Ivy Park pieces. But if you have a difficult decision to make and can only throw down cash on one item, it's unquestionably the darling hoodie.
